XSEED announced they will publish the updated version of Corpse Party on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam on October 20, 2021.
This updated version of Corpse Party has been revamped, but still contains the same charm of its 1996 release. In addition to the five main story chapters, each with multiple gruesome endings, the title features 16 “Extra Chapters” expanding the series’ lore, characters, and relationships, including two brand-new episodes introducing new characters with intriguing roles to play. The “Extra Chapters” included in this release are also fully voiced in Japanese for the first time in the West.
Corpse Party features RPG Maker style designs, but still features plenty of scary moments as players face off against some genuinely scary scenes. This is thanks to the game’s atmosphere and characters. wo original Extra Chapters expand on the relationship between series favorites Ayumi and Yoshiki, as well as introducing Miku Shirayume and Ryoka Iwami, two brand new characters with their own intriguing roles to play in the grisly legend of Heavenly Host Elementary.
Corpse Party will be available for $19.99 as a digital launch. Owners of the original Corpse Party on those who pick up the new version on Steam can purchase the alternative for 25% off.
